Family mourns Pakistani slain by NATO strike

Father of soldier killed in NATO cross-border strike says Pakistan should cut all ties with the United States.

    Pakistan's military has rejected the findings of an inquiry carried out by the United States and NATO regarding a  November 26 strike on a Pakistani post near the Afghan border.

    The strike killed 24 Pakistani soldiers and prompted Pakistan to close its borders to NATO convoys and to order US personnel to vacate the Shamsi air base. The government subsequently said it would review its terms of engagement with Washington.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder met with the father of one of the victims of the strike in Charsadda, northwest Pakistan.
